SWJ Enterprises Launches "Johnson & Johnson Gift" Web Site
The new site features Simeon W. Johnson's inspirational book, "You're a Worthwhile Person in More Ways than a Million."
Brooklyn, NY (PRWEB) May 2, 2007 -- SWJ Enterprises announces the launch of the new "Johnson & Johnson Gift "Web site, available at http://www.JohnsonandGift.com. In addition to featuring a library of author Simeon W. Johnson's books, the site also showcases Johnson's most recent book, "You're a Worthwhile Person in More Ways than a Million." The book takes a behind-the-scenes look at the individuals who make our society function, the common men and women who enhance everyday life but are often overlooked.
"Without the critical support of the so-called 'little people,' their lives, and ours, would quickly come to a grinding halt," Mr. Johnson explained. "These unsung and certainly underpaid workers, to me, are as valuable as our society's 'stars.' After all, when a water pipe bursts, who becomes the most important person in your life--a rocket scientist, a mathematician, a brain surgeon, or your plumber?"
Inspired by the New York City blackout of 2003, "You're a Worthwhile Person in More Ways than a Million" illustrates how all members of society rely on each other for survival, especially in the modern age. Mr. Johnson asserts that any diversion from a full understanding of this critical relationship threatens to break this vital chain.
"The individuals profiled in this book are genuine composites of real people working in and around New York City," the author explained. "I am one of those people. Together, our numbers are legion. We are the backbone, the life force, and the dynamic energy that moves the wheels of society forward. The more we respect ourselves, the more others will give us the respect we so richly deserve."
Written with a vision that crosses cultural, educational, skill, and religious boundaries, "You're a Worthwhile Person in More Ways than a Million" aims to break down the often-superficial differences that serve as dividing walls between people. In his book, Mr. Johnson dares to think of what life might be like if these walls did not exist and if society realized it is only as strong as its weakest link.
"Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. elegantly expressed this idea when he said, 'If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep the streets even as Michelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music, or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the host of heaven and earth will pause and say, here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well.'"
